"Terrible Nova" - I missed the pilot, only caught the second one (the one with the really bad birds ripped straight from Pitch Black & Hitch).
Totally agree - by the end of the show (I am stubborn) I couldn't think of a single character that I didn't want to see hurt in some way. I'm thinking this is made for an undiscerning teen audience.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.

I’m betting that we’ll see a move to Fridays before the season is out – Surely a Fringe lead-in would help?

Quote:I've only seen the pilot so far and I have the next episode but haven't gotten around to watching it yet. I thought it was okay and did just about enough to keep me watching for a few more episodes but it pretty much ticked all the cliche boxes that it could and really didn't try anything new. A main lead who just happens to be law enforcement so we can get some gunplay and action from him. The moody, rebellious, troublesome son. The daughter who is smart (hmmm, I wonder if she'll figure out the rock equations). The tough but fair camp leader. His missing son (who we already know is still alive). And so on and so on.
The show needs a kick up the arse if it's going to succeed, it needs to get away from the cliches and find it's own way otherwise even Friday night won't be be good enough for it.
Of the new shows I've watched so far this season Terra Nova seems to fit into the same box as Ringer and Person Of Interest. All three have great potential and all three (so far) haven't really given me much. Ringer is keeping me going purely because it's SMG and the pilot was good. The last couple of episodes have been fairly 'meh' IMO. I had really high hopes for Person Of Interest and it is my favourite of the three I mentioned but again it follows too many cliches and I want to see more hints of what the computer can do. There was that slight hint at the end of the pilot that it may possess a greater AI than what we know of so far and I hope they go down that route more.
I'll give all three shows a bit longer and see how they develop but they all need to get themselves sorted out quickly.

I really don't get all the hat for this one. It's not a masterpiece or anything but it's not terrible. It reminds me a lot of Star Trek. Some unexpected thing goes wrong, the characters flail around trying to figure it out, pseudoscience mumbo jumbo, everything goes back to normal. Could be much worse.

I just did a quick check on IMDB and apparently it is 'Wash' as in short for Washington, her last name. Plus, aside from Malcolm and Reynolds being used there is also another character called Zoe.
I say it's just coincidence at the minute but I'm sure others will read more into it. If they add another name then I might change my mind - assuming I'm still watching by then.

Sorry 'bout the quick retort, but at the time I couldn't muster enough interest to bother summarizing it for you. It was basically a murder investigation that saw a couple of misdirections as to a suspect, interspersed with the family-friendly "let's watch a dinosaur egg hatch" scenes with young Zoe and her mother.
Or to put it even more bluntly, :vomit:
